BIS 3.2 is available in Asia Pacific and the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) and rumor has it that the update will hit the Americas (North and South), during the weekend of October 16th. The update will include:

  • Google Mail Calendar Synchronization – Subscribers can perform two-way synchronization of Google calendar entries and entries in the calendar application on the BlackBerry smartphone.
  • Automatic Login Enhancements – The automatic login feature is now available to more subscribers. Subscribers who use a user name and password to access their BlackBerry Internet Service accounts no longer have to type their user name and password on their smartphones to manage their email addresses.
  • Show and Hide Password Option – Subscribers can choose to show or hide the passwords for all email addresses that need to be validated by clicking the Show password or Hide password options.
  • New Password Criteria – Newly created passwords for BlackBerry Internet Service accounts and BlackBerry email addresses must meet new criteria.

  • BlackBerry Protect is also rumored to be included in the coming update, but BIS 3.2 documentation doesn’t confirm this.

      RIM can keep BES but it should definitely end this BIS crap ASAP and implement Exchange ActiveSync so all these features can be enjoyed natively on the device for gmail AND hotmail and any other service compliant with EAS … BIS is useless! Gmail users have been able to get all their email (with ALL folders), calenders, and contacts since early ’09 via Exchange ActiveSync. When these are all finally available in BIS for each of the major internet services, maybe BIS will be appealing again.
